Were you looking for information about Triglycerides? Triglicerid is a common misspelling of triglycerides.
Your body needs triglycerides to function properly. They are important because they serve as building blocks for cells and are used to create energy. Triglycerides, which are the main storage form of fat in the body, are made in the liver and found in the fats in foods (saturated fat and unsaturated fat). A triglyceride level under 150 mg/dL is ideal. Anything over 200 mg/dL is considered high and may require medical attention, since high triglycerides increase your risk for heart problems.
